    @pot I didn't know gas stations are built in the middle of the road.

    "It will be really interesting to see if the Model S completely dries up when the Model X comes out." - you mean like the Cayenne dried up when the Panamera came out?

    If the 70D is a price cut compared to the 60 then every new model year car that comes out from any manufacturer is a "price cut" because obviously something improves between model years. That Tesla chooses to release new products as soon as they are ready as opposed to using model years seems to confound people.

    In a previous article, I calculated the impact of the 70D: http://bit.ly/1Ak6UWl
    which easily enables Tesla to make and sell more cars for the same amount of battery and how much extra revenue it would generate.
    e.g at a 50/50 split of 85/70 they could make 3200 extra cars in a year using the same amount of battery.

    "If the average person spends 10 min a month pumping gas" - that's actual time spent pumping, not counting actually deviating (even if only a little) from your route. It easily adds another 10 minutes.

    @GreenTech - thanks for all the responses to the nitpicking :)

    @watching - except for the fact that solucky loves to sneakily introduce complete fabrications as fact. As a general rule I've stopped responding to his comments. As an example in this article he claimed that VW plugins bring higher revenue than Tesla in Norway.

    Follow the links here for the details on my solar system:

    For a car that saves you 20-30 minutes every month, once in a while 40 minutes is no big deal.

    @pot thank you for proving my point. You are the perfect example of a non ev owner dismissing the ev.

    Read some stats on american driving habits before calling other people ridiculous. As usual translating what you think into reality for others.

    @cpar - I just happened to hover over your name and shockingly saw this:

    "However, I also have a passion for entrepreneurship and the environment, and keep some money invested in higher risk companies that have a chance of building the future."

    That is exactly what Tesla embodies. In fact if there is one company that perfectly fits that description it is Tesla. And yet here you are at every given opportunity bashing the company, misleading others with half truths, lies and plain old FUD. Taking every opportunity to spin every positive into a negative and every news item/article into your own personal anti-Tesla agenda.

    "This was a one-time opportunity" - wrong.

    "this is a volume segment with low margins and extreme competition" - are you saying the BMW 3, Merc C class, Audi A4 are low margin cars?

    "The Model 3 will likely backfire on Tesla - or Tesla will have to raise prices." - TFTF as a long time follower of Tesla you know better than that. The ASP of Tesla cars has always been way above the base price. And the base models will not be delivered for a year or more until battery prices are much lower because Tesla will deliver signature/performance/... models first.

    "Porsche will have access to the same battery tech as the entire giant VW Group." - and this helps how? What great thing has the VW group been able to come up with battery wise? Even if they do have access, it will probably be 2025 before they have volume.

    "Because Tesla has a monopoly on Panasonic's intellectual property? I think Panasonic will provide its expertise to any automaker with a few billion in
    cash to throw their way."

    Whoever wants to throw away a few B needs to start now, not in 2020. And that is not happening.

    @skeptic way to derail the discussion. We started with high end model 3 vs pajun. Then you said 45k. Now you are at 35. Way to go.
